Samedi Trouvailles De Brocante à domicile De Matin

Mum and I had a very successful Saturday morning, indeed. Lots of great bargains out and we seemed to snag every deal! At our first stop, which was just down the street, we came across a box of vintage marbles I just had to have...and for only 25 cents! Mum said they reminded her of her school days when she would sit under her favourite tree and play marbles with all of her friends (and she would win every time, although she was too sweet to keep them - she always returned them back when they told her it was their 'favourite' marble!)
Then we came across a stack of books and more silver trays (I think I'll pick up some black chalkboard paint tomorrow and get started on a few more blackboards!)
The final bargain of the day was a retro looking bread bin! A dream find for me, and I have been looking everywhere for one! And to think, we probably could have done more damage had it not been for the fact that I had to get to was bad enough I had only left myself 15 minutes to get there!

That was a wonderful deal on the marbles. I went junkin today and put a bunch of photos on my site of the shop I went to. Nita

Only 15 minutes to get to work!
Well at least you picked up some bargains. A girl has to get her priorities in

Oh I love your finds! I collect marbles in an old gumball machine. I love the way they look in there.
